    THE ART GALLERY OF WESTERN AUSTRALIA

    Pablo Picasso (Spanish, 1881-1973) | Violin and Grapes, spring-summer 1912 | Oil on canvas | 61 x 50.8 cm | The Museum of Modern Art, New York. Mrs. David M. Levy Bequest 2012 Estate of Pablo Picasso / Artists Rights Society (ARS), New York

    Let your students discover how some of the big names in modern art have presented new takes on traditional subjects.

    This exhibition from The Museum of Modern Art, New York traces how modern artists have reinvented landscape, still life and portrait from 1889 to today. Over 100 paintings, sculptures, drawings, photographs, prints and media works offer innovative interpretations of traditional subjects and reflect dynamic changes in artistic attitudes towards individuals, objects, and spaces. From Frida Kahlos confident self-portrait to Gerhard Richters blurred likeness; from Paul Czannes iconic table top still life to

    Jeff Koons shiny commodities; from Vincent van Goghs roiling olive trees to Richard Longs land art: the artists in Van Gogh to Richter break from tradition, inventing radical new forms that transformed the art of the twentieth century.

    Engage your students with a visit to this special exhibition of Indigenous artists works from the State Art Collection.

    Many of the Indigenous artists works in the State Art Collection deal with found objects and introduced and relatively new technologies. A substantial number of works, however, remain directly linked to traditional practices, through style, materials or medium. At the nexus of this space is a contested area of Indigenous arts practice that is surveyed in Made to Remember.

    Made to Remember scrutinises these practices, and examines the complexity of relationships between utilitarian objects of work (such as

    baskets), objects made purely for pleasure and aesthetic satisfaction, and objects designed to aid in worship or to fulfil ritual obligation (such as Pukamani poles). Contemporary objects made from found materials, designed for political or historical purposes; and objects du jour, made en masse according to the desires of the market, have stimulated new dialogue, posing challenging questions regarding the use of Indigenous-made objects. Your students will be challenged and inspired by this display from the State Art Collection.

    The Western Australian Indigenous Art Awards is a national award founded in 2008 to celebrate the breadth, diversity and excellence of art from all corners of Indigenous Australia. The awards acknowledge the significant and ongoing contribution Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists make to Australian art, culture and society. Since the inaugural Western Australian Indigenous Art Awards in 2008, the Awards have attracted nominations from 734 outstanding individual artists and artist groups.

    The Western Australian Indigenous Art Awards is an opportunity for your students to

    see the most recent, diverse and exceptional work, across a range of media and styles, by Indigenous artists from across the country. Each artist is represented by a group of their works, which more fully allows an understanding of their practice and inspiration, and it is this unique aspect that makes the Western Australian Indigenous Art Awards singular nationally.
